Action for Blind People are a National Charity who run one and two-day courses providing information, advice and practical skills for anyone who has sight loss as well as their family and friends. The sessions provide people with sight loss advice on a range of essential everyday skills such as how to get around outside, use public transport, cook healthy meals, shop and bank online and even how to make a cup of tea safely.
Lizzie Abnett, from Action for Blind People, said: “It can be frightening and overwhelming for someone newly diagnosed with sight loss but practical and emotional support is available.” Being blind or partially sighted does not have to mean losing your confidence or independence. We hope anyone with or affected by sight loss will sign-up to their local Finding your Feet course, come and share their experiences with others, and benefit from the wide range of information and advice on offer’.
